    But I made it there in 2010 and wrote A Coney Island Greeting on the Fourth of July.

    Great photo and even greater Diary - fun reading.
    (Note: When Freedom Land was up I lived right across the parkway from it. According to my Father, a race track was to be build on that property before the Freedom Land fiasco.)

    Ed Siciliano Hi Ed. I have fond memories of Freedomland and later I have memories of playing in the dump and excavating amusement park stuff on the grounds that were suppose to be off limits.

    In the time between that land being Freedomland and Co-Op City I had other ways of finding adventures there. But there were guards and you had to be quick on your feet. That scene in "Stand By Me" with the kid running from "Chopper" often reminds me of my post-Freedomland departures from the dump.

    Hey did you ever walk out to the train bridge over Pelham Bay that you could see from from the FreedomLand grounds and jump off the top? It was a long way down.
